Sebastian Roché stars in "The Vampire Diaries" on The CW as the vampire Mikael. He also stars in Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin," opposite Jamie Bell and Daniel Craig, as Pedro.

Roché has recently played recurring roles in The CW's "Supernatural," as Balthazar, FOX's "Fringe," as Thomas Jerome Newton, and CBS's "Criminal Minds," as Clyde Easter.

Sebastian Roché is perhaps best known though for his role on ABC's daytime soap opera "General Hospital" as James Craig, an evil tyrant who came to Port Charles in search of a briefcase containing valuable microchips. After holding residents hostage for 16 excruciating hours during a robbery at the Metro Court Hotel, he continued to torment the town when it was revealed he was in fact Jerry Jacks, the younger brother of Jasper Jacks. In addition his brother, Jerry, has to deal with his very fiery sister-in-law, Carly. Roché was on the series from 2007 – 2010.

Sebastian was raised in France. As a teenager, he lived for six years on a sailing boat with his family traveling from France to the Mediterranean, Africa, South America and the Caribbean. Sebastian went on to attend the prestigious Conservatoire National Superieur d'Art Dramatique of Paris.

Upon his graduation from the Conservatoire in 1989, Sebastian started working in French theater, films and television with such actors as Michel Serrault, Isabelle Huppert and Beatrice Dalle and soon moved to the United States in 1992.

Since his arrival stateside, his television credits include "Law & Order," "New York Undercover," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Sex and the City," "The Unit," "Roar" and "Odyssey 5," among many others. Film roles include "Never Get Outta the Boat," "We Fight to be Free," "What We Do Is Secret" with Shane West, "New York City Serenade" with Freddie Prinze Jr, and "Beowulf" with Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich and Angelina Jolie. In addition, Roche has worked on stage with Al Pacino, Julie Taymor and Mark Lamos.

Sebastian currently resides in Los Angeles.
